What budget do you have in mind? Here are a couple of examples to start with:

http://www.amazon.com/Audiovox-Acous.../dp/B002AQ95KI

http://www.aperionaudio.com/product/...58,88,789.aspx

There are plenty of complaints about such products not working correctly, as well as satisfied customers who have had no problems. All of these products must work in certain frequency bands that every other product that you or your neighbors might be using, so as with wireless-anything there could be some interference.

It depends on the environment, both physical and in terms of radio frequencies. Theoretically, the range could be hundreds of feet, as is often claimed, but I wouldn't expect more than a few dozen feet at the most on average, if you can get it working reliably at all.

Walls substantially decrease the range at which the audio signal can be transmitted. If this range at your location was short to begin with, then there could be problems, otherwise it should work (not unlike wireless telephones).
